Ross Edgley's Great British Swim

YouTube vlog and live stream

In November 2018, Ross Edgley became the first person to swim around the entire coast of mainland Great Britain, in a brutal 157-day endurance challenge.


We provided production support for the weekly vlogs on YouTube, filmed at sea and viewed by an audience of millions, and live-streamed Ross's final swim as he completed the challenge alongside hundreds of fans who came to swim with him for his return back into Margate Harbour.

The live stream was an early pioneer of remote live production, with four remote cameras transmitting simultaneously over bonded 4G sim cards, including live coverage from a drone and a camera located onboard the support boat 3km out at sea. 
The camera feeds were received by us live at Red Bull's HQ in Salzburg, Austria to be broadcast online to over 400k viewers watching live on YouTube and Red Bull TV. 

In addition to the live coverage, we produced a variety of VTs with highlights from Ross's five month challenge to be inserted into the stream, alongside graphical overlays featuring real-time comments from viewers watching live, live stats and location data, and telemetry from Ross during his final swim.
